The student courses takes personal and professional development to a new dimension. By attending the program, you will gain knowledge in areas not delivered to you during your studies. The courses will increase your communications skills, enable you to understand your patients better and you will also have a better understanding of how your working life can look like. I am very certain that this program will be of great benefit for you personally and also for your future career as an optician.
Head of Professional Advancement, Specsavers
It’s great that Specsavers arranges the Student courses for us – I appreciate that they focus on the continued development of their employees. Personally the combination of customer service and optometry is very appealing to me, so I found the RX Factor course very useful. It’s valuable to get advice in addition to what we learn at school, e.g. how to communicate with children during an eye test. The ‘real life’ as an optician differs a lot from what you learn in school, so it’s great to get this opportunity to learn from someone who has a lot of professional experience.
